15. Mary's - 9.7/10

  

world's best burger - Mary's

Mary's Website

Address:
6 Mary Street - Newtown
Sydney, New South Wales
Country: Australia

Description: What do we have here? A burger that is rumored to be one of the best in Sydney and one that some say is better than any in America. I made the trek out to Mary's in Newtown to see what all of this was about.

Google Maps will lead you straight to this place except it looks like a graffiti covered house with no sign indicating it is indeed Mary's. If you're brave enough to step into this unmarked place you'll step into a cavern of locals and hipster-esque styles. There are two burgers that seem to be a fan favorite. The Mary's Burger and a traditional double cheeseburger. I ordered the Mary's with lettuce, onion, tomato, cheese, and special sauce; since it sounded like it might have that magical something. This masterpiece arrived with a tasty order of skinny fries and I unwrapped the wax paper to find a glorious looking burger. I picked it up and touched the bun. WOW. If the burger gods made a bun it is this one. It was pillowy and airy, but held the burger and its drippings perfectly. I mean this bun had it... best burger bun in the world, no doubt about this burger fans. I took a bite and the special sauce was creamy, acidic, and had a perfect tang. The cheese was melted and all over the place in every bite as it should be. The lettuce, tomato, and onion were portioned well and complemented the entire package. I think I ate this burger in less than two minutes and my mouth was watering the entire time. The only thing wrong was that despite there being grease and flavor everywhere it seemed the beef patty was too thin to hold any substantial amount of juicy beef flavor or tender texture. I was saddened. There it was. The one of best burgers in the world but it was missing the patty to bring it all together.

So what was the Burger Guy to do... I mean...come on Mary's you almost had it. No regrets. I ordered up the fan favorite burger (double cheeseburger done up with just ketchup, mustard, and pickles) to give them a second go. This burger had two patties which I thought could help to solve my problem, and of course I had to throw on the "trashcan bacon", which I was unaware of when I ordered my first burger. I dove into this burger and it too was amazing. However, the Australian's honestly do not know how to prepare bacon. It's always wiggly and undercooked. If you order the bacon ask for it crispy. Such a disappointment for a few dollar up-charge. The double cheeseburger was amazing, however I am not quite sure the double patties solved my juicy and tender beef dilemma. It was like biting through a meat stack and somehow was not as enjoyable as a single thick juicy and tender patty. In conclusion, Mary's probably has some of the best burgers in Sydney but you have to be careful. Get the Mary's Burger + single or double patty to suit your style + NO bacon = burger heaven. If Mary's thickened up their patties a little bit and focused on beef they would be on track for one of our highest ratings ever.
 

14. Rustic Canyon - 9.8/10

  

world's best burger - Rustic Canyon

Rustic Canyon Website

Address:
1119 Wilshire Blvd
Santa Monica, California
Country: The United States of America

Description: The burger at Rustic Canyon is one of the best in the United States, and it also has one of the highest price tags I’ve ever seen on a burger at $18.00, so it better be good. Featuring a patty made from short rib and brisket which is cooked with precision and very tender. On top of the patty is a perfectly prepared onion fondue, confit bacon, white cheddar, housemade pickles, and herb remoulade. All of this is put between a perfectly soft and neutral brioche roll to be a melt in your mouth combination of flavor. The fries and drink selection are also top notch at Rustic Canyon. After eating this burger I pondered whether I had the room (and the cash) to eat another right then and there.
 

13. The Attic Ale House - 9.8/10

  

world's best burger - The Attic Ale House

The Attic Ale House Website

Address:
4247 E Indian School Rd
Phoenix, Arizona
Country: The United States of America

Description: The Burger at The Attic is one of those burgers you can judge on looks alone. A glistening patty of beef that sits atop a pretzel bun stacked with fresh and well thought out ingredients. The full list of ingredients consists of a bakery-fresh pretzel bun, 1/2 pound of juicy beef, spring mix, tomato, chipotle mayo, and your choice of cheese (and you have to add the optional bacon). The burger pairs many complementary flavors and a blend of sweet, savory, and spicy along with the combination of fresh premium ingredients that will make your mouth water. I'd personally suggest adding on the bacon and selecting provolone cheese. The chipotle mayo does plenty to bring a little bit of kick for your tastebuds. Egg was offered as an upgrade/option but I believe it wouldn't do much to complement all the veggies on the burger, and it would make the entire burger unmanageable. This gem is like hitting the jackpot... easily the best burger in Phoenix.
 

12. MEATmarket - 9.8/10

  

world's best burger - MEATmarket

MEATmarket Website

Address:
The Deck, Jubliee Market Hall Tavistock Street
London, Greater London
Country: The United Kingdom

Description: MEATmarket is a lively burger joint catering to young people looking for a tasty bite with their friends. Featuring tasty burgers, fun sides, and social seating MEATmarket is a fun place to be. Despite being very popular, it seems serving times are generally pretty rather quick.

They are famous for a few burgers, but I decided to try the Dead Hippie burger that has helped to put them on the map. The Dead Hippie is two very juicy beef patties, a soft bun, dead hippie sauce, pickles, and minced white onion. The Dead Hippie's ingredients all melt together into a perfect combination. Each bite has a perfect distribution of flavor and ingredients. The stand out ingredients are the dead hippie sauce, the medium-rare beef, and the soft and tender bun. The creamy texture, soft bun, flavorful sauce, tangy pickles, melted cheese, and are executed perfectly .

While the burger is very messy, it is still manageable in size. Due to the size of the patties, putting two of them on top of each other with another slice of cheese is not overwhelming. Given the price of this burger, and the speed it came out of the kitchen, this is definitely one of the best places to satisfy a sudden burger craving.
 

11. Mother Flipper - 9.8/10

  

world's best burger - Mother Flipper

Mother Flipper Website

Address:
Brockley Market, SE4
London, Greater London
Country: The United Kingdom

Description: Mother Flipper. This burger joint came as a recommendation from the experts in London. A few hour affair that pops up at the Brockley Market on Saturdays.

The preparation at Mother Flipper is done right in front of you. I waited in line and my mouth watered at the expertly constructed burgers. A three-man crew consisting of a full-time assembler, full time flipper, and a bun toaster cranks out these tasty delights. I got the Candy Bacon Burger which consists of a tender sesame bun, candied bacon, juicy beef, shredded lettuce, pickles, ketchup, mustard, and thinly sliced red onion. Each of the ingredients on the Candy Bacon Burger are well thought out for flavor. A sweet and crispy bacon, tender and juicy beef, vinegary and tangy ketchup + mustard + pickles, melted cheese, and a toasted but soft bun to soak it all up. My burger disappeared before I had a chance to write too many notes about it. That is a good sign when it comes time to dish out a score.

The Candy Bacon Burger is something to be admired for its well distributed and thought out flavors. A smart decision not to use a tomato really helps the texture, and makes this burger very focused on key flavors. Every ingredient contributes, but none overwhelm. Compared to the other top burgers my mouth felt a little dry, but this might be because I did not have a drink at my disposal while enjoying it. This is one of the best burgers in London and there is no doubt about it. A shame that it is not easier to get these burgers more than one day a week.
